The Pamirs


LORD DUNMORE embodies in these volumes the journal of a somewhat remarkable journey of a year's duration, the initial and terminal points of which were Karachi and Constantinople. During most of the time he was accompanied by Major Roche, and the object of the journey was sport, especially the pursuit of the Ovis poli.

The Pamirs: being a Narrative of a Year's Expedition on Horseback and on Foot through Kashmir, Western Tibet, Chinese Tartary, and Russian Cental Asia.

By the Earl of Dunmore, F.R.G.S. In two volumes. (London: John Murray, 1893.)
